Contemporary Approaches for the Acute Treatment and Secondary Prevention of Venous Thromboembolism

This series of three educational activities featuring physician and pharmacy faculty experts in VTE addresses contemporary approaches for the acute treatment and secondary prevention of VTE based on recently updated guidelines and clinical trial data. Clinical case studies integrated into the activities facilitate application of the content to clinical practice. Strategies for overcoming barriers to the appropriate use of direct oral anticoagulants and for ensuring long-term follow-up are discussed.

Anti-Integrin Therapies in Inflammatory Bowel Disease

The management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is rapidly evolving. This 2-part series, based on a satellite symposium held at the 2016 Advances in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America's Clinical & Research Conference, will provide updates on the utilization of emerging anti-integrin agents that are currently under investigation for IBD. Participants will follow two patients—one with Crohn's disease and the other with ulcerative colitis—and learn how to use clinical trial results and real-world data to incorporate these drugs into patient treatment decisions.

The Expanding Role of Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound in the Detection and Treatment of Heart Disease

The advent of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) now allows us to convert nondiagnostic images into accurate and clinically useful scans. CEUS is increasingly being used to evaluate patients with known or suspected atherosclerosis. A high-resolution, noninvasive imaging modality, CEUS, is shown to be safe and may benefit patients with coronary, carotid, or aortic atherosclerosis. CEUS allows a reliable assessment of endocardial borders, left ventricular function, intracardiac thrombus and myocardial perfusion. The use of this imaging modality results in an improved detection of carotid atherosclerosis, and allows assessment of high-risk plaque characteristics including intraplaque vascularization and ulceration. The following two patient case studies provide real-life scenarios highlighting the clinical application of CEUS.

Follow the Science: The Evidence Points to a Low-Carbohydrate Diet

The epidemics of obesity and its associated comorbidities—including insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus—constitute one of the most threatening public health problems in the United States. Past paradigms that encouraged people to exercise more and consume fewer calories and less fat have clearly failed to address these alarming trends. In this series, 3 patient case scenarios incorporate interactive polling questions with expert opinion on optimal management of overweight and obese patients. The focus is on an increasingly robust evidence base favoring low-carbohydrate diets to achieve sustainable weight loss and address cardiometabolic risk factors. Each case highlights different aspects of management, which often must address a host of clinical, cultural, and psychological issues.

Proactive Approaches to Alzheimer's Disease

This series of 3 “specialty house calls” is provided to educate clinicians on when and how to conduct assessments of their patients, when and where to refer them for further evaluation if indicated, and how to educate and support patients and their family members if MCI or AD are diagnosed. These activities also address the rationale for early initiation of therapy and potential advantages of participating in clinical trials.

Each activity offers:
